Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic impressed alongside Luka Modric for Croatia despite their 2-1 defeat to England at Wembley on Sunday, and Tottenham Hotspur should look to sign the 26-year-old to strengthen their options in the middle of the park.
Well, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino seems set to undertake a shake-up of his midfield in the near future, with Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama both linked with moves away from the north London outfit.
The Argentine boss will want an established individual to come in if Tottenham do choose to cash in on both of those players, and Brozovic could be a great option.
The Inter star, rated at £36m by Transfermarkt, has established himself as a key player for the Serie A giants over the course of the last couple of years, and he has scored 20 goals and provided a further 19 assists in 127 appearances in all competitions.
Brozovic has formed a strong partnership with Modric in the middle of the park for Croatia, and he needed to up his game following the news that Ivan Rakitic had been ruled out of featuring at Wembley because of injury.
The 26-year-old certainly did that, and he outshone the former Spurs man alongside him statistically with an impressive display against Gareth Southgate’s men.

The Inter man impressed from an attacking point of view by having one shot, making three key passes (one more than Modric) and successfully completing two dribbles, while his overall passing accuracy was just under 94%, as per WhoScored.
Brozovic also showed that the defensive side of his game is strong too after making three tackles, three interceptions and three clearances, as well as blocking one shot.
If Pochettino wants to bring an all-round midfielder to the club, attempting to sign the Croatian seems like a no-brainer.
